Re: General Boston Discussion.

You have to build projects next door to major transit hubs (like Tremont Crossing at Ruggles to at least 400~450'). Build like Seattle and Vancouver. 284' instead of just shy of 400' is epic fail, and a classic example of a neighborhood and 1 or 2 councilors conspiring to effectively, shoot themselves in the foot. The 100' lost off each tower, and additionally, the hotel space would have paid for scores of additional housing units–that now, will not be built. ...and a huge opportunity lost.

Re: General Boston Discussion.

Wasn't sure where else to post this (seems there's no general North End thread):

City to break ground on North Square Reconstruction Project.

Also, there's a call to artists for public art:
